Item description for Bembaland Church: Religious and Social Change in South Central Africa, 1891-1964 (Studies of Religion in Africa, No 8) by Brian Garvey...
Roman Catholic missionaries entered the territory of Bemba-speakers in Central Africa in 1891. Seventy years later the Church in Bembaland was about to enter a new phase as an independent religious community within a newly established African nation. This book traces the stages of church growth from its pioneering introduction to a traditional agricultural polity, through periods of disturbing economic and social change, to the later challenges from autochthonous Christian foundations originating in both the Catholic and Protestant traditions.
